Moruya Tips – july 13
RACE PREVIEWS 🧐
Race 4 – 2:35PM RIVER RESTAURANT CLASS 1 & MAIDEN PLATE (1650 METRES)
The Terry Robinson-trained LORD DESANIMAUX (No.1) has finished in the minor money at his past three starts and overdue for a change of luck. After finishing just behind the placegetters in tough Class 3 at Rosehill, he finished in the money at his next two starts which were both on the Canberra track. Then last start, he looked home for all money at Nowra in his third shot at a Class 1/Maiden event, but again no cigar as he was run down in the final 50 metres, leaving him with yet another minor prize. Scott Pollard sticks with him here and from another good draw (gate 3), he maps well again and should settle better than mid-field on the fence. Can it be today ? I’m thinking so.
Race 7 – 4:20PM MORUYA MOTEL BENCHMARK 66 HANDICAP (1435 METRES)
He finished down the track last start, but the Keith Dryden-trained BALONNE (No.3) hit the line well enough to catch my eye and I believe he can figure in this contest. A winner on his home track at Canberra four starts back, he then stepped up to BM70 company at his next two starts at Warwick Farm and back at Canberra again where he didn’t quite measure up. Then last start, he settled near last in the 14-strong field here in the Narooma Town Plate and turning for home, was still near last and ended up the widest runner. He showed enough over the final 200 metres to suggest he will be much better suited back over the 1400 metres. Its worth noting that his past three runs have been over shorter trips since that Canberra win. He was spotting the front-runners at least eight lengths on the turn, and was beaten 4.5 lengths on the line so he did finish well and had plenty to spare at the finish. He looks ‘overs’ today and is well worth an each-way ticket.
